This is my  life with all  its faults

The love of  God my heart  exhaults,

When  I feel down and sort  of rough

It’s  faith in God  that keeps  me tough.

I’ve seen a lot  and been through war

I’ve lived the pain  right to the  core

And  wonder if the Lord  does know

How  very much  I love  Him  so ?

The  world we  know  is  crass and cold

Its conversation  brassed and  bold

And leaves  no kindness in its  wake

Just  policies that  crash and  break

With  no  thought for tomorrow’s  child

Inheriting  this place  gone  wild.

God  help us all to  find  our peace

Before  He grants  each soul’s  release !

My  heart is heavy,  laden down

As  my whole world  is turned around

My  face  is veiled and  hidden by

Shadows  of tears  I cannot cry.

The silence  of the  night  is there

To  masque  the cloak of fear I wear

Oh  blessed Lord  make my way light

Please  help me get  through one more night !

Today’s  a day for  reveries

Of love  and tears and  memories

Of sadness and  reproach, it seems

Of fear and of aborted dreams.

I’ve lived a life so full of pain

And will not pass this way again

I wait here in the silence of

My  lonliness  and  derth  of love.

Dear  Lord,  protect me  from myself

And place  me  on the  “keepsafe”  shelf

I know Your heart’s  with  every child

In  manner kind,   loving  and mild !

 

 

WITHOUT YOU ( 2019 )

Oh  how I’ve dreamt that you and I

Would  be together by and by

Somewhere  upon an island near

Or  in some place that’s free of fear.

We’d chat about  our fav’rite things

Like  love and care and angel wings

I  miss your laugh and your bright smile

Though you’ve been gone a long,  long while.

It’s  been a road with ups and downs

Filled  with wise men,  some fools and clowns

I truly don’t  know  what to do

How shall I manage without you !

 

 

MAN INSIDE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/17

These are the days have been foretold

By  sages in  those times  of old

When  men were  there to oversee

The  rules  of  our  society.

Then  manners  were a  part of all

We   thought or  knew or  did  befall

Our  faith in  God  was not  denied

He  is our  Light,  the Man  Inside !

My  wishes for a pleasant day

To  you  are wending  fast their way

I  hear the  church bells  as they sound

With  joy and  worship  heaven bound.

For  all who  listen to  my  voice

Your  time’s  arrived to  make a choice

Choose  God  and learn how  to obey

To  love your neighbor  and to pray.

Be kind  remembering  the  need

Of  all God’s  children and their seed

For  all are  meant to  heed  His Word

And  cherish all that  they have heard !
